afghanistan, of iraq and now with the arab uprisings, so on. it's that when you lift the lid of oppression off these countries, then, and this is where this differs, i think fundamentally from say the collapse of the berlin wall and eastern europe and western democracy. when you take the lid of repression off these countries which is right to do, you then find a whole lot of forces that were suppressed by that oppression come out. religious, ethnic, tribal and so on. and so the worry people have about syria, i mean i think we can be very blunt about this is okay, what assad is doing is entirely unacceptable. but what happens when he goes? who takes over? who are these people? what motivates them? and now personally i think we have got to try and shape the opposition and do what we can to hasten assad's depar ture. i believe that myself. but that is the problem western leaders have, and i have sat in the seat and faced these situations so i know how difficult it is, it likely-- particularly in the light of experience, what then happens. so you know, all over the middle east at the moment you've
